    It wasn't when I posted!

    They announced it, then denied it... then confirmed it.

    For all who fancy a bit of nostalgia.
    BBC Four have two shows from Ten until midnight.
    Firstly a look at Classic Albums featuring 'damn the torpedoes '.
    Followed by Rock goes to college with Petty performing at Oxford Poly in 1980,surprised they needed a Poly with all those Uni's;-)
    Should be an enjoyable evening. B-)

    Oh, shame. Had forgotten all about him. Haven't seen him in anything for quite a while. Found him quite funny.

    Thanks Wingy! That gives me loads of confidence to a long a healthy life ahead of me! Just as an aside, I am waiting for a knee replacement and saw the anaesthetist last week. Worried me a bit when he told me that it was a straight-forward op, but in my case they will be having a bed standing by on the Critical Care Unit! I just hope they have the ol' jump leads to hand! :emoji_coffin:

    On the Chase tonight a question was : How old was Florence Nightingale when she died ? The answer was she popped off aged 90. I thought people didn't get a long life in her days ? She was living in the days of loads of deadly illnesses, and wasn't she a nurse during the Crimean War ?

    That's quite surprising, seeing what work she did and who she must have come into contact with.

    Just googled Florence Nightingale. For thirty years she was confined to her bed. She had lots of illnesses, so from aged 60 till her demise aged 90 she was bed ridden !
